*From the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse*

A University of Auckland team has been successful in attracting Ministry of Business and Innovation funding for a four year project. The project has the aim of producing the information necessary for informed policy making, working towards a goal of achieving intergenerational change in family violence exposure in New Zealand.

The project has funding to support two doctoral candidates. The project team are currently accepting expressions of interest. The main supervisor will be Associate Professor Janet Fanslow and co-supervisor Associate Professor Tracey McIntosh.

Interested potential students will need, in the first instance, to establish their potential  for pursuing a PhD in this area by submitting:

1.   An up-to-date academic transcript.

2.   An example of academic writing.

3.   A proposed area of study aligned to this research.

Applications close on Friday 22 January 2016. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to an interview early in 2016. From this list it is expected that two applicants will be selected and supported to apply for admission to the Doctoral Programme at the University of Auckland.

Further information (including possible research projects) is available on the University of Auckland website.
